Ahh the King fire 4 years ago, remember it well, Gary Dahlen was the other pilot, I was just on the Hirz fire with him a few months back. You can see the twelve guys running on the left. They were in a bad place, deployed their shelters, Gary got them running before the fire hit them, and I guided them 2 miles running through trails and logging roads to where we could get them picked up.

There were numerous people picked up on the Carr fire and the Camp fire, we don't have cameras and record it all though.....
Gordy is online now
